    I don't really have any bites or anything (except some on my right foot/leg), but I found this on my neck... I'm not sure if it's just garbage or a dead skin or what... It wasn't 'alive' or anything - it's possible it's just garbage. This is my pointer finger for scale.

    It was EXTREMELY tiny, so I took the best pictures I could with my iPad

    no

    Is that a 'no' it isn't a bed bug?

    Is it because the coloration is off?

    Do you think it could be a dead bed bug though?

    Thank you! Truth be told, I've been losing sleep over this stupid thing... And I haven't eaten in almost two days. I'll go to sleep now.

    I'm sure my questions are stupid - but with the shape of that thing and the little dot, I felt certain. Anyway, Lou, what you do here is incredible and I want you to know that we all appreciate you. It probably doesn't always feel like it, but you're helping people's quality of life substantially.
